Re: Indian Military Aviation- Jan 10 2012

The modification was mainly for torsion, since the R-73 was about 3 feet longer than the R-60, the C.G of the missile shifted forward and hence caused increased torsion.Per se this is no problem, th...

So the number of wet pylons is 3 and 3 should be enough for a single engine plane. LCA has five wet pylons. Inner board cleared for 1200Lt and Mid Board for 800Lt. The Fuselage point was suppose to be 1200Lt. But due to some problems it is now 700Lt only.But at any given time, LCA carries 3 drop ta...
